Muscat Lunel is the noblest member of the muscatel family, with an elegant aroma and tantalising intensity. This late harvest sweet white wine has a rich nose of honey, apricot and mango, with caramel, ginger and citrus fruits on the palate. It is a well-rounded wine of real character, with a light body, making it a highly drinkable choice.
Food Pairing Recommendation
This dessert wine pairs very will goose liver, or try it with an apple or cherry pie, as the natural tartness of the fruit is perfectly complemented by the sweetness of the wine. To prepare a delicious cheese board, serve it with blue cheese including Gorgonzola, Stilton and Roquefort.
